Mindzeye Studios™ Teams with Sideshow Collectibles to Offer Highly Anticipated Gears of War™ StatuesFriday, October 10, 2008
The Gears of War™ statue line produced by Mindzeye Studios™ will be carried by Sideshow Collectibles™ – just weeks before the eagerly awaited video game sequel hits store shelves.
The highly detailed initial line of statues from the award-winning video game Gears of War™ (GOW) will be available to Sideshow Collectibles™ customers beginning October 9th, 2008. “Mindzeye Studios™ has truly captured GOW in their statues,” said Brant Bridges, Operations Manager at Sideshow Collectibles. “They’re wonderfully faithful to the in-game models, with an incredible amount of detail in each sculpture. The faux-bronze and platinum finishing allows you to see all of the impressive sculpture work in each piece – these are definitively the GOW collectibles to own.”
“Sideshow has set a new standard in the collectibles market by offering only the highest-quality products. That type of quality control is something that echoes our own business philosophy and work ethic – in addition to speaking volumes about the type of confidence they have in us,” said Pete Jirles, president of Mindzeye Studios™. “We’re thrilled to be working with Sideshow to bring the Gears of War™ statue line to a very knowledgeable, international audience. The consumer confidence that Sideshow has created over the years is a testament to their insistence to bring only the very best to their customers.”
The Mindzeye Studios™/Sideshow Collectibles™ partnership comes just prior to the Gears of War™ video game sequel hitting the market in early November.
The GOW statue line, consisting of Marcus Fenix™, Dom Stantiago and a Boomer, will be available in both cold cast bronze and cold cast platinum versions, and strictly limited to 1000 pieces of each version worldwide.
